Heavy Metal contemporary-exterior
 

Heavy Metal

The organic shape of the surrounding trees contrasts the hard-lined form of the home. To the right, a photo studio is clad in pre-cast concrete. The large front door defines the central entry. To the left, the great room is screened by perforated metal.

Heavy Metal is a contemporary take on the Miesian courtyard house, in a rural setting. In this instance, the courtyard is created as much by the landscaping and vegetation as it is by the architecture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Although its geometric form is in stark contrast to the fluidity of its natural setting, the home’s layout establishes strong connections to nature. A link to nature from each interior space was one of Perry’s requirements. Another was flow. He wanted a single level that he could easily move through, from living space to office to photography studio. Living up to its Heavy Metal name, the home has abundant steel. “Steel was introduced as an element to add a level of interest and texture from the inside out,” says Snider. Two hundred panels, each 4 feet by 9 feet, wrap the perimeter. The panels are untreated, left to rust to a warm patina, as seen in this view of the front facade.The decision to embrace oxidation was arrived at during the design process. Snider recalls that the notion of the home’s changing over time especially appealed to Perry.

Superman grew up in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas. But just across the eastern border of the state in Joplin, Missouri, lives a real man of steel. For Bill Perry, who owns a steel manufacturing facility, steel is his life. So when it came time to design his family’s single-level home, he knew just the material to use heavily. Appropriately named Heavy Metal, Perry’s home features steel extensively inside and out. Gavin Snider of Hufft Projects, which designed the home, says Perry’s intimate involvement, ambition and creative spirit are what made the design possible. Maybe a little superpower, too? Houzz at a Glance Location: Joplin, Missouri Size: 4 bedrooms, 4½ bathrooms Team: Architectural and interior design: Hufft Projects; landscape design: 40North; lighting design: Derek Porter Studio Although its geometric form is in stark contrast to the fluidity of its natural setting, the home’s layout establishes strong connections to nature. A link to nature from each interior space was one of Perry’s requirements. Another was flow.
